Thanks to Wouter Kursten for the feedback on supporting over 1,000 sessions.
The code to support that is based off of his post here: https://www.retouw.nl/2017/12/12/get-hvmachine-only-finds-1000-desktops/
This script requires Horizon 7 PowerCLI - https://blogs.vmware.com/euc/2020/01/vmware-horizon-7-powercli.html
Updated May 12, 2021
This is a PowerShell script that uses PowerCLI and the View-API to query Horizon sessions. The script will show all disconnected sessions, or sessions that have been disconnected longer than specified hours. You can then logoff those sessions. Also, all logon and disconnect time are shown in the local time zone.

Show / Logoff Sessions Disconnected more than X Hours
Choose 3 to return all Sessions Disconnected longer than the number of hours you specify. You will be prompted to enter the number of hours - this will show all sessions that have been disconnected longer than the number of hours you specify. In this example we will choose 8 hours.
You will now be presented with a menu to 1 Logoff all sessions or 2 to do nothing and return to previous menu.
Choose to Logoff the sessions and they are logged off immediately.
We can now see that there are no sessions that have been disconnected over 8 hours.
